Greg Brady Operations Manager, Z103.3FM Morning Show, Co-Host “Morning Talk Magazine-KBRF
I’ve been in Fergus Falls with Lakes Radio since 2000, before that I’ve worked in The Fargo and Detroit Lakes markets. I’m originally from the East coast but have pretty much been accepted into the Sensible Midwestern Lifestyle. I am a functioning workaholic, and can usually be found at our studios, or helping engineers resolve some technical difficulty at 2am or at a live action remote broadcast soaking up some local community flavor.
I have been with Lakes radio since May of 1982. That was my start in the radio business and now it's "in my blood!" I actually answered an ad on the radio for a copywriter. For some reason, they hired me and I began working my way through the ranks! While seated at my typewriter (I know, that dates me!) the manager came to me and said, "Today's the day you're going on the air!" He took me in the studio and told me to "start pushing buttons until I figured it out!" True story: baptism by fire! I've been enjoying my career in radio ever since! Our morning talk show, "Morning Talk Magazine," is as much fun as I've ever had in the business. It's a pleasure to work with Greg Brady and be the token girl on the show! Every day, they make me laugh until I have to re-apply my make up! I've always said if laughter were aerobic exercise, I'd be a stick! My midday shift on Z103 is a fun part of what I do, too! I love the music, and it sure doesn't feel like work! (Hope the general manager doesn't take away my paycheck, though!) My passions outside of radio are my grandchildren Maddox, Griffin & Claire, who I adore and spoil at every opportunity! Other loves include living half the year at Lake Lida, my favorite place in the whole world!
I hope they let old people work in radio because I intend to keep at it for a long time!
Dave Bishop Dave Bishop was born and raised right here in Fergus Falls. Graduated from FFHS in the mid nineties. Got into radio when his former boss told him to jot some stuff down and head to the radio station and record a couple ads. Thought it was kinda fun thought it would be a cool part time job for a few months. (that was back in 1998) Dave has done just about every job on the on air side here at Lakes Radio, with the exception of sports play by play.
